    I am interested in loading between 70 and 300 images into a post , that is like a proof for my clients ( I am a photographer). I am doing this now with Jetpack, using mosaic and carousel and it works well. The  potential issue is that I will quickly load my media database with images that are only going to be online for 6 months  and I don’t want it to get weighted down as I think this could be a problem.

    Is it possible to place a folder of these images outside of my media library and  still use jetpack mosaic to place the images in a page I create without using the WordPress Media Library?

    Sure. You can just code a bunch of img tags… <img src=”http://www.someplace/some-dir/some-pix.jpg” height=”xx width=”xx”> on your page with either  some non-breaking spaces between them… or <br>s etc.

    However, if I were a photographer I’d use the NextGen plugin  http://www.nextgen-gallery.com/ to manage my galleries.

    I just love the look of the Mosaic look from Jetpack. (although would consider NextGen if I need to) Is it a simple enough process to set something up using Mosaic? I have no problem outputting a folder of web friendly jpegs and uploading via FTP but you lose me after that with  your IMG tags stuff. I am a bit green when it comes to this stuff :-)
